This newly renovated fisherman’s cottage, nestles in one of the many side streets in Appledore. Close to the village’s Quayside where guests can enjoy a leisurely evening stroll or a famous Hocking’s ice cream, whilst admiring the view across the estuary to Instow. The Wellies has been tastefully furnished throughout, whilst retaining much of the original character and charm. Comfy leather seating and a multi fuel wood burner make the living room extremely cosy and welcoming after a busy day exploring the coast. A shallow step down leads into the separate dining room, which also has a wood burner a dining suite and two additional comfy chairs. Two steps lead up to the small but well-appointed conservatory style kitchen, with pull out breakfast bar and patio doors leading to a fully enclosed and attractive paved courtyard with garden furniture making it ideal for alfresco dining. In keeping with the style of the cottage there are very low threshholds and fairly steep but carpeted stairways to the first and second floors (both have handrails on one side). On the first floor there are two tastefully furnished bedrooms, one double with TV and one bunk bedded room. Further down the landing two steps lead down into the shower room, with a rain shower in large walk in cubicle. Stairs to the second floor lead directly into the open plan master double bedroom with sloping ceiling (low head-room) and Velux Cabrio balcony window, which when fully opened creates a balcony area from which to enjoy the beautiful estuary views over the rooftops. The Wellies offers comfortable accommodation for families or groups of friends wishing to get away and explore the the beautiful North Devon coastline.
